Planned Global WiFi from Space Will Destroy Ozone Layer, Worsen Climate Change, and Threaten Life on Earth

Five companies are gearing up to provide high-speed global WiFi coverage from space within the next three to four years. This would be an ecological and public health nightmare, according to a recently-formed international coalition: the Global Union Against Radiation Deployment from Space (GUARDS).

According to GUARDS, the extensive satellite networks required will endanger the ozone layer and significantly contribute to climate change. Rocket exhaust contains ozone-destroying chlorine, water vapor (a greenhouse gas), and aluminum oxide particles, which seed stratospheric clouds. Complete ozone destruction is observed in the exhaust plumes of rockets.

The New York Times (May 14, 1991, p. 4) quoted Aleksandr Dunayev of the Russian Space Agency saying “About 300 launches of the space shuttle each year would be a catastrophe and the ozone layer would be completely destroyed.”

At that time, the world averaged only 12 rocket launches per year. Maintaining a fleet of (ultimately) 4,000 satellites, each with an expected lifespan of five years, will likely involve enough yearly rocket launches to be an environmental catastrophe.

GUARDS’ second area of concern is WiFi itself. Although widely perceived as an unqualified good, WiFi operates using extremely rapid pulses of microwave radiation—the same radiation used in microwave ovens. And a parade of studies continue to be published and ignored implicating wireless technology in the die-off of forests, the demise of frogs, bats, and honey bees, the threatened extinction of the house sparrow, and damage to the DNA of the human species. It is vital to the continuation of life that large parts of the earth be spared from the incessant radiation that accompanies wireless technologies.

“The human body”, says Dr Gerard J. Hyland, of the University of Warwick, UK, “is an electrochemical instrument of exquisite sensitivity”, noting that, like a radio, it can be interfered with by incoming radiation. If a signal can operate a mechanical device, it can disturb every cell in the human body.

On February 7, 2014, the U.S. Department of Interior stated that “the electromagnetic radiation standards used by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) continue to be based on thermal heating, a criterion now nearly 30 years out of date and inapplicable today” in reference to guidelines governing WiFi radiation frequencies.

In 2011 the World Health Organization classified radiation emitted by cell phones, and other wireless commercial infrastructure such as WiFi and smart meters as a Class 2B possible human carcinogen, along with lead, engine exhaust, and DDT. Yet, the global WiFi projects would make this exposure ubiquitous and inescapable.

A recent letter sent by 88 organizations, representing over a million people, to the European Economic and Social Committee outlines how governments are betraying the public trust by ignoring the hazards of radio frequency/microwave (RF/MW) radiation.

Studies show wireless radiation can adversely affect fetal brain development, in addition to causing double-stranded DNA breaks and causing a wide spectrum of illnesses. GUARDS believes that continuing and expanding involuntary exposure of the public to this known toxin violates the Nuremberg Code of Human Rights for non-consensual experimentation.

GUARDS is an international coalition of diverse groups that have joined together in order to stop the implementation of global WiFi from space, which threatens all life on earth.

Legislators discussion over smart meter concerns heats up in Annapolis

Legislators discussion over smart meter concerns heats up in Annapolis

 POSTED: 05:54 PM EDT Mar 26, 2015   UPDATED: 12:03 AM EDT Mar 27, 2015 
MARYLAND – Legislators are still fighting to hold companies more accountable for installing smart meters.

Smart meters record how much energy a household is using and sends that information back to a utility company without needing a technician to come take a reading.

However, Delegate Glen Glass (R-34A) argues that the meters often overheat, with the potential to cause fires. He also says he’s seen firsthand that households using the meters will see their bills double, or worse, after they are installed.

Now, he is pushing for legislation that would require companies to give customers advance notice about the meters, and prevent them from adding on extra fees.

“It’s all over the state, people’s bills are going through the roof, I mean I don’t know I think this is white collar crime,” says Delegate Glass. “These things are terrible, they only benefit the electric companies, they do not benefit the people of Maryland.”

Delegate Glass’s bill was heard in a House committee meeting on Thursday. A cross bill in the Senate already had a hearing, but neither has been voted on just yet.

UK-Dumb And Dumber: EU-Mandated Smart Meters Still Coming to UK Against All Possible Advice

Dumb And Dumber: EU-Mandated Smart Meters Still Coming to UK Against All Possible Advice

Here are two words that should chill you: smart meters. These digital utility meters are designed to provide real-time statistics to energy providers, thus allowing them to monitor consumer usage 24-hours a day – and charge differential rates accordingly.

An ambitious £11bn scheme to deliver new gas and electricity meters to every home and business in the UK, the single largest government IT project in history, is currently in the consultation period. Already plenty of alarm bells are ringing at the prospect. As they should.

The UK Smart Meter programme has the hugely ambitious target of installing 100 million new pieces of kit nationally by 2020. It was initiated by Ed Miliband as energy secretary in 2008, following an EU directive and confirmed by the Coalition Agreement in 2010.

Earlier this month a government committee flagged that the programme was in danger of becoming a “costly failure”. A report by the Energy and Climate Change Committee said it does “not believe” plans to install the devices in homes and businesses by 2020 will ever be achieved.

“Without a significant and immediate change to the government’s present approach, which aims to install smart meters in 100 per cent of UK homes and businesses, the programme runs the risk of falling far short of expectations. At worst, it could prove to be a costly failure,” said Tim Yeo MP, chair of the committee.

Capita, which runs the Data Communications Company (DCC) responsible for rolling out the programme, added “there is no feasible way to maintain the time-scales”. So why is the government continuing with the plan? Because this is an EU-mandated policy with no opt-out clause.

On Friday the Institute of Directors (IoD) added its warning that the programme is a government IT disaster in the making. The IoD called for the entire smart meter scheme to be “halted, altered or scrapped” to avoid an “unjustified, over-engineered and expensive mistake”.

In a major new report entitled “Not too clever: will Smart Meters be the next Government IT disaster?” the IoD brands the devices “unwanted by consumers, devoid of credibility and mind-blowingly expensive”. The business group calls on an incoming government to review the project and consider a fresh start.

The report’s author, Dan Lewis, Senior Infrastructure Advisor at the IoD, says the political consensus driving smart meter installation is “a conspiracy of silence among politicians in thrall to big ideas and even bigger budgets”.

Lewis continues: “The professed aims of the Smart Meter programme are laudable, and we all recognise the benefits of reducing consumption and increasing energy awareness. But there is little credible evidence to suggest that a scheme of this size and complexity will achieve those goals.”

The IoD report highlights a number of key concerns:

Despite the EU Directive, 11 nations have ruled out electricity smart meters and only 5 are pushing ahead with the 2020 target for gas meters. In contrast, as is so often is the case, the UK has gold-plated the Directive.
The government refuses to publish any of the reports on the programme by the Major Projects Authority.
The cost-benefit analysis conducted by the Department for Energy and Climate Change is so heavily redacted as to be almost unreadable.
The Smart Meter network would be vulnerable to cyber-attack and disruption.
Introducing time-of-day pricing to shift consumer demand will only work with price increases that are not politically realistic. Retail consumers really can’t change their energy consumption that much.

If anyone is interested in a look at where the UK is heading, unless the scheme is stopped, just consider what effect the forced installation of smart meters has had on consumers in Ontario, Canada.

Right now tens of thousands of smart meters are being removed from homes in the province because of the propensity of the units to spontaneously combust. Egregious errors and baffling bills have also plagued smart meters, with the Ontario ombudsman reporting billing complaints doubling in the space of just 12 months.

All that is coming your way at the gallop, as the old legacy parties are committed to completing the rollout by 2020 despite all mounting advice to the contrary.

Which shows just goes to show there’s no fool like an old fool.

Construction on giant cell towers needed to make Los Angeles County’s emergency communication system work has been halted until radiation concerns can be addressed.

Los Angeles supervisors stop construction of cell towers at fire stations

Tuesday, March 24, 2015 08:08PM

Construction on giant cell towers needed to make Los Angeles County’s emergency communication system work has been halted until radiation concerns can be addressed.

Dozens of firefighters came to the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors meeting Tuesday to let them know they do not want cell towers where they work.

“The proximity of the towers and people living next to the towers is of grave concern, but it’s a very complex issue as to how those radio waves affect people all the way up to three miles away,” said Dave Gillotte the president of Los Angeles County Firefighters 1014.

The towers are going up at fire stations and sheriff’s stations, which is part of a new high-tech communications system to help first responders talk with one another. It’s being planned by the Los Angeles Regional Interoperable Communications System (LA-RICS).

According to Patrick Mallon from LA-RICS, they are looking at 177 sites. Fifty-one sites are currently under construction and eight have been completed.

But some firefighters and residents say they are worried about radiation exposure and claim these projects were pushed through without any oversight because federal funding ends on September 1.

“If I don’t sue, somebody will. I’m going to protect my three babies under the age of three under my roof,” one Rolling Hills resident said.

Another resident was concerned about the cancerous effects the towers could have.

Los Angeles County Fire Chief Daryl Osby said it is safe.

“If I thought this posted significant health concerns to the firefighters I would raise that concern to the board,” he said.

The board agreed there are still too many unanswered questions and concerns and decided to stop construction for now at fire stations. They criticized the planners.

“This is stupid, and again the point is how we got this far is irresponsible,” Supervisor Michael Antonovich said.

Supervisors approved a motion to stop construction at fire stations and study the issue further. They will also request the Department of Commerce to approve an extension to be able to get federal money in the future.
